    Got me further into DC Comics

    I've always loved the DC Universe, but this game in itself has been one of the most enjoyable DC-related experiences of my life. The lore is obviously extremely expansive because it's based off the comics, and the story is rich with intriguing plot. The combat is smooth and the PvP is exciting. A variety of powers allows for players to become the hero or villain they've always wanted to be, under iconic mentors such as Superman and The Joker giving you orders for their dirty work, themselves! Fight alongside your heroes, or even as them in this game rich with many things to partake in. A great blend of the lovable comics with the MMORPG elements we all desire in these games creates a pretty great game to play.

    Started out fun

    Let me start off by saying I played this game for 4 years (since it went F2P). For a while the game was great and both PVE and PVP were actually balanced.

    When you create a character you have a choice of what power you want to be, but not all of the powers are accessible unless you purchase them. In the past your choice of power didn't matter, but now due to some updates there are powers that have become OP in both PVE and PVP. When the gameplay consists of using powers and weapons in PVE and PVP you can see how that might be a problem. There is plenty of content to choose from, and unlike some other games you don't need to do PVE in order to be successful in PVP and vice-versa.

    Pros:
    Unique gameplay - Cool powers and weapons.
    Movements - Can choose between flight, super-speed, and acrobatics.
    Leveling - Very fast and easy now.
    Content - New content added every month.
    Legends - Can play as an iconic character from the DC Comics.
    Crossplay - PC players and PS players can play together on the same server.
    Leagues - If you can find people you get along with and who can help you out, they can really make the game that much more enjoyable to play.

    Cons:
    Unbalanced powers - Some powers are just plain OP in PVE and PVP.
    Community - Lot of unfriendly people, especially towards new players (this is why leagues are very useful).
    Replay badges - If you got the have you can basically replay any content you want until you have the max gear (rinse and repeat every month).
    P2W - See above. The game basically became P2W with the introduction of replay badges.

    Serious Review

    My experience in the game:

    2 max level characters, healer and dps perspective, dungeon and raiding experience, ONLY f2p stuff , no money spent in the game.

    Review:

    Ill start with basics, character creation is not that good but you can customize how you look in terms of cloths from the start so thats a plus, dont expect Black Desert Online creation level but you can have weird skin types, i saw The Hulk made by some dude and he kinda looked like it. The powers are interesting and not the classic warrior, priest etc (although its obvious why). Leveling experience is fairly quick and you cross paths with several villains and heroes from DC.
    End Game: This is where the game shines for me , the raids are fun and if your not paying attention you can loose (but they arent That hard) you can do group dungeons, solo dungeons or duo dungeons which are fun too and it isnt a korean grind fest but you do take some time. Pvp is okay.

    Cons:
    You have to buy the DLC to get full experience, since there is a good limitation to f2p players (bank, broker, content)
    Graphics are not that amazing
    Configuration options are somewhat limited

    Pros:
    Game feels unique
    Dc stories
    Raids are cool and entertaining
    Constant content updates
    Can play in ps3 and ps4 (no data crossover though)
    Community is big

    Conclussion (tl;dr)
    Play if you like mmorpgs, pve content and you dont care to spend money on expansions.

    DC Fangasm

    DC Universe is a fun game, but there are some little things to trip you up a lone the way. Some Powers, Weapons, and add-on's are locked behind micro transaction. Don't let the micro stop you there are a lot of free things to do, from building a base and getting free things to make your character look different from others.

    I recommend DC Universe Online to any DC Comics lover

    DC Universe Online suffers from many paywalls. Everything from powers, to pretty much all of the end game content has a paywall on it. Either pay in microtransactions, or unlock it all via a subscription.

    It’s your choice, but to enjoy the game to its fullest, you’ll have to spend money. With that said, the 30 levels of free content, and available bits of group content will paint a picture on if the subscription is worth it. The in-game soft targeting action combat system is very enjoyable. Personally, I’d recommend DC Universe Online to any DC Comics lover… but quality, just like justice, sometimes comes at a price.
